Electric Oven/ Fire Question


Hello, DIY electric oven/fire experts,

Is it normal for things (forgotten tortillas in a pyrex bake dish) to ignite on fire? I mean for flames to come out of the tortillas? That's what happened this evening in my oven.

Then I made the mistake (yes I know it was a mistake!) of throwing water on the flames in the dish. The fire went out but the pyrex dish instantly shattered and then I had to spend the rest of the evening picking out chunks of glass and charred tortillas from my oven.

Well....tortillas do have oil in them...get them hot enough....and they burn....

Look on the bright side.....your oven is clean, the house didn't burn down....and I bet you don't forget about stuff in the oven again

I don't know why, but this reminds me of something that happened to a friend.

She didn't have very much cupboard space in her kitchen, so she stored all of her Tupperware in the oven. One day, someone preheated the oven....
